    I am using PowerDVDxp to play DVDs on my computer but I find they are always too dark. Is there a way of turning up the brightness in some way whilst playing these DVDs. My screen settings are fine for everything else.

    I am using WinDVD atm, but I am pretty sure PowerDVD has an option for brightness in its settings somewhere.

    Feature to adjust brightness is only available, if u are using a Nvidia Vid card, then u have to go in Power DVD config and enable Hardware Accelerator.

    refer to Power DVD's help menu

    :cool:

    Thanks, I am using a Voodoo 3000 card with Windows XP drivers. However, having tried all the settings I have now found the option to increase colour and brightness in PowerDVD. The options were blanked out, but opened up when the DVD started.
